Description

A new station to serve a development of newly built homes.  In an unprecendented arrangement, the fire station was to be built by the housing developer, allowing the Fire Department to take advantages of the economies of scale available in multi-unit development.   The design challenge, therefore, was to adapt as many of the residential building systems as possible from the adjacent houses, while incorporating the technology and functional requirements of an emergency services building.
